January is the month of…….

In the past few months, I have found it very interesting when researching this topic to come across all the monthly designations that each month has.  While a lot of the designations are food related, and I enjoy celebrating food; I wanted this new year to be more noteworthy.  I will comment on just a few of these “noteworthy” celebrations.  If you would like a complete list, please go to:  www.nationaldaycalendar.com/january.

Of course, the first of January is New Years Day.  This is a day to look forward to the New Year and all that it holds.  A lot of people make resolutions to practice better health choices, eating habits, sleeping habits and increase exercise.  I always make a pledge to read a certain number of books for the year.  Plus I try different genres that are out of my comfort zone.  See what kind of resolutions you will be making this year.

The rest of January is noted for:  on the 2nd – National Science Fiction Day; 3rd is National Fruitcake Toss Day; 4th is National Trivia Day; the 18th is Martin Luther King Jr Day  (third Monday) as well as National Winnie the Pooh Day; the 21st National Hugging Day; the 22nd is Celebration of Life Day; 25th is National Opposite Day; 28th is Have Fun at Work Day; and the 31st is National Backward Day! See if you can incorporate these celebrations into your lifestyle. Your children will appreciate this too!

December is the month of…

In order to write our blog, one of the first things that I do is to research the coming month and see all the neat things that we are to celebrate that month.  It is always fun to come across some lesser known celebrations that I was not aware.  I always try to find some items that are related to the library and reading since that is our main objective; to encourage reading and learning!

Well I searched high and low and had a very difficult time.  It seems that December is to celebrate EATING!   So here is a list of some tasty items to celebrate: the 1st is Eat a Red Apple Day; the 4th is National Cookie Day; the 8th is National Brownie Day; the 13th is Ice Cream Day; the 15th is National Lemon Cupcake Day; the 16th is National Chocolate Covered Anything Day; the 18th is Bake Cookies Day; the 24th is National Chocolate Day; and the 25th is National Pumpkin Pie Day. Whew I am reeling from all that sugar just thinking about it!

December is also the month to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa.

We do not want to forget  Pearl Harbor Day on the 7th; National Poinsettia Day on the 12th;  Make Cut Out Snowflakes Day on the 27th; and the last day of the month and year on the 31st is New Year’s Eve.

So in your spare time in between cooking and eating and celebrating why not pick up a good book and learn something new!!!  It will make your month and might be a high point of your year! Enjoy.
